Sushant's sisters move HC, seek quashing of FIR against them

Actor Sushant Singh Rajputs sisters Priyanka Singh and Meetu Singh on Tuesday moved the Bombay High Court, seeking to quash the FIR registered against them by Mumbai Police for forgery and procuring fake medical prescription for their late brother.

The Bandra police lodged the FIR against the duo on September 7, based on a complaint filed by Rajput's girlfriend and actress Rhea Chakraborty, who is currently in jail in connection with a drugs case related to the actor's death. A division bench of Justices S S Shinde and M S Karnik took up the plea on Tuesday and then posted it for hearing on October 13, saying there was no urgency.

In her complaint, Chakraborty accused Rajput's sisters and Dr Tarun Kumar of the Delhi-based Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital of forging a prescription of medicines supposedly for anxiety that were prohibited under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, 1985.

CBI issues statement post AIIMS' unofficial leak; Homicide angle not ruled out

After the massive expose by Republic TV on Monday on the unnatural U-turn in actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death case following the selective and unlawful leaks by the AIIMS Forensic Panel head Dr.Sudhir Gupta on Saturday, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has issued a statement for clarification amid various media reports.

The statement reads, "CBI investigation related to death of Shri Sushant Singh Rajput is still continuing and all the aspects are being looked into meticulously". They have also stated that the homicide angle has not been ruled out yet.

This certainly restores the actor's death case to its previous momentum which had been temporarily sidetracked by the 'unofficial' disclosure by Dr. Sudhir Gupta stating that Sushant's death case was that of suicide.

Shock over AIIMS unofficial leak, Dr Sudhir Gupta preempting CBI?

On Saturday, various media houses reported that a special AIIMS team examining Sushant Singh Rajput's death has ruled out murder. All of these reports were allegedly based on leaks from forensic expert Dr. Sudhir Gupta to the media. However, there is no official statement that came in from AIIMS.

Various media outlets have concluded that Sushant had committed suicide based on what Dr. Gupta has selectively told them as per top sources. Some of them even put out snapshots of Dr. Sudhir Gupta's private chats. But there is no official statement from AIIMS. On September 28, the AIIMS team submitted its report based on analysing the Mumbai police's post-mortem report and autopsy along with photographic evidences. The CBI which had stated that 'conclusive findings' have been shared is analysing the report along with the evidence in the case to conclude if it is a case of suicide or not.
